“Wonderful hotel experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I have stayed in Ada Hotel twice, and before that with the owners Dr and Mrs Sumengen when they had a different hotel in Istanbul. I went looking for their new hotel in order to enjoy the same sense of connection and security I had experienced in their previous location. I have stayed in a number of other hotels in Istanbul but from now on this is The One for me. I will be returning tree times in 2014, as i am doing research for a new book. I find the location in their part of Sultanamet soothing and like a small village within the greater city. It is really convenient for walking to all the main historic sites and the tramways. Nothing is too much trouble for our hosts and their help is kindly offered. The food is fantastic and the breakfast unbeatable, prepared by three wonderful sisters, who also clean the hotel extremely well. All the facilities in the rooms are comfortable and work well. I know there are less expensive basement rooms for those on a tight budget, but I choose a sea view and it is fantastic. I highly recommend Ada Hotel. Dr Robyn Rowland AO

We stayed at Ada Hotel for a week in January 2014 and we were really pleased to have booked this accommodation for our stay. Everything went smoothly from booking to checkout. All our emails were answered promptly. The owners are super nice and helpful. The location is the best. You can walk to all attractions in minutes. The room was very clean and cozy for three of us. Having the hearty buffet breakfast, with a breathtaking sea view, on the rooftop was just the most wonderful way to start the day!
We will definitely stay there again and would definitely recommend Ada Hotel to anyone traveling to Istanbul.

This was our first trip to Turkey - Istanbul, and after reading excellent reviews from different websites, me and my wife decided to stay in Ada Hotel. I cannot recommend this Hotel enough. The Location is fantastic, in the area of Sultanahmet, walking distance to the Grand Bazar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sohpia, Bosphorus boat cruise, and many other attractions. I will never forget the amazing service we was provided with, since even before i got in the hotel. The friendly staff, and the amazing host, really made our trip to Istanbul extra special. We booked a double room with Sea View and Jacuzzi, and wow ! So clean, tidy and warm. The staff always kept the room tidy and clean everyday. Also was really good after long day walking around town, come to the hotel and relax in the Jacuzzi ;) The breakfast was perfect with different options for everyone. The fact that you have it on the top floor balcony with sea view, its just amazing. And again, the staff is there all the time looking after you. We were so impressed with everything, that we really look forward to come back. Not only because we did like Istanbul, but also because we already miss everyone that looked after us in Ada Hotel. I definitely recommend this hotel for anyone travelling to Istanbul, and wants to make their stay very special. Our very special thanks to Mr Demet Sumengen ( owner/host), for looking after us so well, and helping with everything. Until next time...

Room Tip: I recommend the rooms with Sea view and Jacuzzi.

We were so impressed with Ada Hotel on our first visit to Istanbul, that we booked there again in January. Once again, we were warmly received by the owners and enjoyed a wonderful three night stay in our "home away from home". This hotel has the perfect location, with the most amazing sea view from our room as well as the breakfast rooftop terrace. The beautifully decorated rooms are comfortable, clean and neat. The buffet breakfast is superb and guests are well taken care of. We would definitely recommend Ada hotel and look forward to staying there again in future.

We received a room upgrade which moved us from a dual room setup to a single room. This was a surprise at first because the three of us wanted the privacy of the two interconnected rooms. The owner quickly gave us an additional room for free.

The price was fair and breakfast was the best we've had in Turkey. Room services are super thorough. They even put your stuff into the drawers and closets which probably not every visitor appreciates.

Thanks for the great stay!

The hotel was fantastic - I traveled to turkey by myself, and could not have been more well received. the breakfast was spectacular, rivaled only by the view from breakfast! The cleaners cleaned so well that I couldn't find my contact lens case, so the manager went out and personally bought me a new one on the spot. They really went above and beyond to make sure that I was happy and taken care of. The hotel itself is very comfortable (i recommend getting a sea-view room), well located and small enough to be very homey. The only downside - very close to several mosques, if you are a light sleeper the noise from prayer might wake you up, but i think that is true of any hotel in the city. Regardless, I would definitely recommend Ada for anyone traveling to Istanbul.
